Short Description

Classical Chinese Medicine Supplemented with Biomedical Sciences

The programme offers comprehensive and systematic Chinese Medicine and biomedical sciences courses taught by teachers of the School of Chinese Medicine and other basic sciences and clinical departments of the Medical Faculty.

Early and Comprehensive Clinical Training

Early clinical training is provided through clinical attachments under the supervision of teachers at the eight Chinese Medicine Clinical Centres for Teaching and Research. In Year 4, students will undergo a junior clerkship at the HKU-SZ Hospital to integrate and practise what they have learnt in junior years. In Year 6, students are required to undertake a clinical clerkship in the teaching hospitals of top Traditional Chinese Medicine universities in cities in Mainland China under the arrangement of the School.

Learning Experience Beyond Professional Core

Students are required to take Common Core Courses to develop broader perspective and build up critical thinking.

Development of Interest in Scientific Research

Students are given the opportunity to undertake laboratory experiments in several Chinese Medicine and biomedical sciences courses. The School has also set up different research interest groups for students to participate during their studies.

Bi-literacy and Tri-lingualism

English is the medium of instruction for most of the Common Core Courses and all biomedical sciences courses. Putonghua and Cantonese will be used in dispensary practicum, clinical attachments, junior clerkship and clinical clerkship, etc.

Mode of Learning

An outcome-based approach to students’ learning and multi-disciplinary teaching approaches, such as problem-based learning and clinical case discussion, are adopted.
